Spend your High School Volunteer Abroad program in the mists of the majestic Himalaya when you volunteer to help improve education for local children or assist with the care of infants and children in India. Whether you spend your days planning fun craft projects with local schoolchildren or organizing a game of soccer with the neighborhood kids, you’ll be able to effect real social change while being completely immersed in a new culture and welcoming community.
Your exclusive Teen Home-Base in Dharamsala is situated in the misty Himalayan community that also serves as a home to a vibrant and welcoming Indian community, as well as several thousand Tibetan refugees and monks in exile (including the Dalai Lama). Your new neighborhood in the Himalaya offers plenty of opportunities for exploration and real cultural exchange. Whether you’re learning how to prepare homemade naan, embarking on an epic hike through the mountains, or visiting Tibetan and Hindu temples, your local CCS staff will be there to lead the way, translate, and answer all your questions.
